MY NEW ART SHOP

I am so excited!!!

I’ve been thinking about making more of my artwork available for purchase, so have been checking out various venues, both online and on the streets. At this point, I’ve decided to stick primarily with an online shop, because some of the people who have expressed interest in my work would not be in a position to visit any local stores or art shops. After researching several online sites that assist with making art available on multiple products, and also handle the shipping, I decided to open a shop on Redbubble.
 
Most of you have been so encouraging about my art over the past 3 years that I thought you might like to know the new shop is now open for business. There are scores of items available with my artwork on them — laptop and phone cases, caps, clothing items, clocks, throw pillows, tote bags, coasters, journals, shower curtains, greeting cards and art prints — just to name a few. I am including a few pictures in this post — a small sample of products. I’ll also be continuing to add more artwork over the next few weeks.
 
You can find the new shop at this link:  Art-by-Ahyoka

Hope you come over and check it out. Also, if you click on the little heart at the top right corner of any designs you like, it makes me look good.  🙂

ART IN BLACK & WHITE

There are a number of black and white photography challenges out there — and also a number of terrific black and white photos posted in response. I’m not really a photographer, but I am an artist who uses watercolor, acrylics, and inks. So every once in a while I like to see what some of my artworks look like when they are converted to black and white. Thought I’d share a few of those today.



New Christmas Card Designs


Each year I create a few new Christmas card designs to sell. This year I’ve decided on two for sure, and I may have two more by next week. We’ll see. But I thought I’d share the two that are definite.

This first one is an original ink sketch cover, and the inside message reads:
“Wishing you a safe, warm, peaceful Christmas.”

 

The second design is original watercolor on the front cover. And the inside message reads:
“It’s Christmas — 
A time to remember Jesus and all He’s done for us — 
and because of what He’s done — to be happy.
WISHING YOU THE HAPPIEST CHRISTMAS EVER!”
